    This forum is full of people with deep opinions about how a professional NLE should operate.

    I’d say that the very best way to get your dream NLE is to get involved in the lightworks beta program. This will be a greatest opportunity to help improve the NLE from the ground up and have your legitimate concerns heard.

    If they port to mac soon it could be the free tool that the everyman pro is looking for, with all the pro compatibility built in, etc.

    Just a thought. If you think Appke is not listening then Lightworks might he the way to go.

    Seems like primetime for an opensource NLE and there is enough opinion and expertise here to create a good one.

    Just imagine what the world would be like today if, instead of FCP X, Apple had delivered the “tool that the everyman pro is looking for, with all the pro compatibility built in, etc.”

    Therein lies the real shame in all of this.

    In todays’s news items I see that Postworks and Technicolor
    have joined forces in New York (call it what they may “Franchise”
    it’s a roll up) Technicolor buys Laser Pacific, these things are the big news. Not all this whining about FCPX, It’s getting old and smelly. If you got Work, If you got Billings, If you got loyal customers, Then I guaranty you are not worried about what Apple
    does or doesn’t do, You will simply find the right tools for the job
    It’s just not that complicated.

    I think within 12 months all of the functionality people have been asking for will be built in.

    I wonder if they will get Walter Murch to endorse thus version? Or if the Cohen brothers will edit a film on it at some point.

    (at some point not tomorrow)

    It will be interesting to see Appkes marketing rollout. the marketing rollout will be the big indicator on where they are going.

    Who will be the brave one? (after omf and XML out are enabled).

    Interesting times.

    Neil,

    You fail to recognize that a large percentage of enterprise customers disagree strongly with your over-simplification of this matter. Go knock on the door at Disney and tell them to stop whining – they have 2700 seats of FCP.

    FCP was enterprise level software my friend, and even companies with only a single seat have every right to be upset that it was replaced with less than beta-level software as vastly incomplete as the so-called release version of FCP X.

    David,

    Great! Then let’s see it.

    [David Battistella] “I wonder if they will get Walter Murch to endorse thus version? Or if the Cohen brothers will edit a film on it at some point.”

    Never gonna happen.

    I used to Love Lightworks. I’d give it a shot again, even if it is just a downtime hobby. I also wonder whatever happened with Montage. It was a quirky thing, but I enjoyed it. Oddly, it shared a few idiosyncrasies with FCP X. Single Viewer and a timeline that wanted to keep shoving everything to the left, as I remember. The thing I really liked about it: It had nine rotating timelines that doubled as bins. I think I probably still use timelines as bins in FCP7 because of the years I spent on the Montage. Of course, the thing would be unusable now, but once upon a time it felt like a real luxury.

    I agree. We will have to see it and many are waiting and watching.

    The first “upgrade” will have to be significant.

    – open FCP legacy
    – edl XML import export (I think we will see a share to devices that will integrate with logic)
    – pro I/O with capture cards for broadcast monitoring.

    I think all of that needs to be in the first update.
